Zerodrytime has a proven track record in getting franchisees from start-up to earning in excess of £50,000 in their first year
Zerodrytime has been cleaning households and commercial premises since 2008. Now with over 55 vans covering virtually every part of the UK, it’s the UK’s only dry carpet, upholstery and hard floor cleaning franchise.
The company also has a master franchise in Ireland and the first overseas master franchise based in New Zealand.
Zerodrytime’s franchise opportunity gives franchisees four cleaning solutions under one franchise, as well as second-to-none training, support and back-up from its UK training centre in the north east of England.
Being involved in the cleaning industry, David Muirhead, Zerodrytime founder, was asked the same question repeatedly: do you clean carpets and upholstery? It was at this point that he realised the huge market potential. After all, who wants wet carpets and the inconvenience that goes with it?
David started investigating and scouring the market for ways to give people what they wanted. In the early days, it took a lot of hard work finding the right machines and products and involved trips to the USA and numerous UK-based chemists to help make the products needed, but it all paid off.
Zerodrytime now has a complete solution and gives its franchisees all the machines, products, processes and back-up to help them succeed. There is virtually no job a franchisee can’t tackle effectively and, most importantly, they leave happy customers time and time again.
The customer base includes Hilton, Thistle, Malmaison, MacDonald, Ibis, Harrods, Harvey Nichols, The Shard, BMW and Audi, plus over 100,000 domestic customers UK wide.
Some of Zerodrytime’s franchisees have multiple vans on the road, changing from the man in a van to a management role. Zerodrytime actively encourages and supports growth in this area.
Training begins with a fast track process prior to the two-week course in the classroom and real-life job situations before hitting the road.
Franchisees also receive ongoing support and marketing advice, with back office tools such as elearning portals and video tutorials to ensure continued success.
Firsts for zerodrytime
Zerodrytime has just achieved two firsts: its first female franchisee, Liz Bayley, who covers Bath; and the company’s first franchisee in the republic of Ireland, David O’Neill.
Zerodrytime franchisees receive all machines, equipment, products, uniforms, van signage, tools, marketing material, a website and full comprehensive training as part of their initial investment. Plus they receive an exclusive territory of around 90,000 homes.
The company has a proven track record in getting franchisees from start-up to earning in excess of £50,000 in their first year.
The franchise is built on solid foundations of support and knowledge - giving new franchisees the platform to build their businesses in their desired locations.
It’s currently in the process of introducing new market leading products - Ultra Guard for carpets and upholstery - giving the ultimate protections against accidents and stains.
Zerodrytime is also planning to expand overseas, with numerous master franchise opportunities in various countries.
